    Sammanfattning : The studies were undertaken to evaluate risk factors and outcomes in small-for-gestational-age (SGA) births, in cohort studies using the population-based Swedish Birth, Twin and Education Registers. A cohort study of pregnant women from Uppsala County evaluated the effect on birthweight by caffeine. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Pathophysiology in postterm pregnancy : Epidemiology, risk factors and cervical ripening

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Women's and Children's Health

    Författare :Nathalie Roos; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; postterm pregnancy;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Postterm pregnancy, defined as a pregnancy of 42 or more completed weeks of gestation, occurs in approximately 5-10 % of all pregnancies. The condition is associated with increased maternal and fetal morbidity as well as an increased risk of perinatal mortality. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mediators of cervical ripening in preterm birth : Experimental and clinical investigations

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Women's and Children's Health

    Författare :Susanne Abelin Törnblom; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]

    Sammanfattning : Background: Preterm birth (PTB) is by far the leading worldwide cause of infant mortality and morbidity. Despite decades of research, the frequency of PTB has not decreased and the basic mechanisms initiating the onset of labour are still poorly understood. Vaginal preterm birth cannot take place without cervical softening and remodelling. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Nitric oxide donors in labor management

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Women's and Children's Health

    Sammanfattning : ABSTRACT Nitric oxide donors in labor management Maria Bullarbo Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology Institute of Clinical Sciences Background: Nitric oxide (NO), a free radical with ultra-short half-life synthesized from L- arginine by the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS), is in the human involved in many physiological and pathophysiological processes, including different reproductive processes. During pregnancy NO is produced endogenously in the human uterine cervix and placenta. LÄS MER
